Comments on the Discussion Paper (March 2016) on the Control Tool and Technology Development Grants Programme1 April 2016
The Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Association welcomes the invitation to comment on the discussion paper informing the development of the Control Tool and Technology Development Grants Programme.

If you are thinking about postgraduate study, you’ll also be thinking about postgraduate work.
A third of PhD-trained researchers in Australia work in industry but this proportion is set to boom during your career (in the US it’s more like two-thirds).
So if you are thinking about further study, give some thought to where you’ll end up working and consider training through a Cooperative Research Centre (CRC). CRCs give you industry experience and the chance to work on the major challenges facing Australia.
